Today, in front of friends and family, the letter Q and the letter U got married…. with the help of our adorable Kindergarteners! In class they spend time learning about these letter and the sound they make together. Then, Mrs. Purdy performs the wedding ceremony of Q and U, accompanied by the WCS orchestra, and declared that what phonics puts together let no spelling mistake separate! What a fun way to learn phonics! Way to go Kindergarten!
Yesterday, our advanced orchestra played in the lobby of the sanctuary for the Widow’s Luncheon at First Baptist Woodway. This was a sweet time for ladies to come together and enjoy conversation and a meal. Our orchestra played and welcomed them as they entered. They sounded wonderful and we are so proud of them!
One of our goals at WCS is to raise future Christian leaders and today the 5th graders put that in to practice with our Math Buddies program! The 5th graders worked with the 3rd graders to solve math problems through skill practice and a treasure hunt. These kids had a blast while learning. Tomorrow, our 4th graders will get their turn to be math buddies with our 2nd graders! We love seeing the “big kids” mentoring and encouraging our “little kids”. Way to go elementary students!

This week our sweet 4th graders WERE a wax museum… yes, they WERE the statues! They each picked a famous person in American history, memorized their biography and then dressed up as their famous person. They invited the school to come to their museum. When we pressed the “button” these kids “came alive” as their character! We heard from famous people such as Sam Houston, General Santa Anna, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lady Bird Johnson, and Davy Crocket to name a few. We all learned so much. What a fun activity! Way to go 4th grade!
We are fired up for our cheerleaders and their amazing coaches!! This weekend they took home the championship trophy at the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders Texas Showdown. We are so proud of them… they represented Jesus and WCS so well! These girls have been practicing so hard and it paid off. Way to go!
Today was our WCS Spelling Bee! Over the last few weeks each grade level has held their own Spelling Bee and today the winners from each grade, 3rd-8th, competed. The winners will compete against area schools on March 23rd at McLennan Community College. We are so proud of our little spellers! We will be praying for Avery and Hudson Higgins, our Spelling Bee winners, as they compete in March!
Yesterday our 5th, 6th and 7th graders presented their science fair project! In the morning they each presented their science fair boards and projects to a panel of judges from different schools. In the afternoon, the rest of the school and parents had the opportunity to come visit the science fair and vote for their favorite projects. Today in chapel, the teachers gave out the awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and honorable mention for each grade level. It has been a bust few days and a great experience!
School will be closed on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 due to bad weather.
